Note that FreeBSD.org doesn't administer the services on jp.FreeBSD.org.  
Instead, jp.FreeBSD.org is delegated to a separate group that manages all of 
the resources for jp.FreeBSD.org including DNS, mailing lists, etc.  You need 
to contact the folks there via postmaster at jp.FreeBSD.org.  Note also that 
spam is an unfortunate reality and that there is only so much that a public 
mailing list run by volunteers in their spare time can do.
